...this lucid book of classification knowledge in pellucid prose and engaging style can easily be described as the best one as of today. -- M.P. Satija Knowledge Organization


...this lucid book of classification knowledge in pellucid prose and engaging style can easily be described as the best one as of today. -- M.P. Satija * Library Progress International * Broughton's book is an essential resource for library science students interested in cataloging and metadata, as well as an asset to librarians and staff in a cataloging or metadata department. -- Wanda K. Gunther * Technical Services Quarterly * Both enjoyable and exhaustive in its coverage, Essential Classification is an excellent introduction to the theory behind classification, the main types and examples of classification schemes in wide usage and the practical considerations of applying them to a collection. -- Jennifer May * Library and Information Research * Broughton's Essential Classification, Second Edition, is a sound work, expertly written and accessible to the beginner without being tedious for those more knowledgeable of classification systems. For those lacking the first edition or otherwise in need of adding a work on classification to their collection, this book comes highly recommended. -- Bobby Bothmann * Cataloging & Classification Quarterly *
